Not bad for Luke Goss' directorial debut, but his writing was awful
Very rarely do we find an actor who takes on too many roles in his own film and succeeds. Here is another example of that failure.
As actor, producer, writer and director, he was actually impressive for his directorial debut. His acting in this film was pretty decent for a B-grade actor. But he failed miserably in the writing department. Aside for it being only a decent 90 min length film, it felt much longer than that. The pace was very slow and the overly obvious and unnecessarily dragged out scenes should have been edited out. This film would have been better off being 60 mins.
Then there was the huge plot issues and unbelievable scenes - too many to point out and give away the spoilers, but you can't miss them, they're everywhere. He would have been better off passing on the writing and screenplay to someone with more experience to make many scenes more believable and avoid the massive plot and story issues.
The other major and obvious from the start issue was the sound. Someone needed to place the boom mics much closer to the actors. All dialog sounded like it was coming from another room. In some cases, the score was louder than the dialogue and I missed entire sentences. The score was also kinda lame and also made the pace feel slower than it was.
Overall still very ambitious and successful in his directorial debut, and rating this as a low budget amateur B-grade production, it's a 6/10 from me. Did I still enjoy it with its flaws? Yes. Would I recommend it or see it again? Most likely not.
